Very nice, Mark.

Here’s another Jimbo on my layout. That was a nickname for Jim Morrison of the Doors, whose most famous song, Light My Fire, is my all time favorite rock and roll song:

AF8046B2-BF5B-4504-84D3-4842DA96FCDFA picture of Jim Morrison singing into the microphone is on the little marque or billboard above the little red structure on the left. The larger red structure on the right is Whiskey a Go Go, the LA bar where The Doors started out. These structures are not very accurate, but I have seen a picture of the real Whiskey a Go Go, and it was red like mine.

More importantly, one can have some fun taking a stab at creating, and putting on their layout, whatever they like.

The Doors happen to be, by far, my favorite rock and roll band.

In my little world, I leave this troubled world behind.

Even the tech gurus have to read to keep up to date, but it boils down to 101. The rest is choice on how to from A to B ; Model T, Valient, or Vette?

I'd say you likely didn't fail half as bad as the teacher did

My Dad used "Jack", much like the jerk in Happy Gilmore does

Melgar, that chubby guy has a twin! Here he is at my ballpark sitting in the top row on the right side of the Popsicle stands:

Looks to me like the same guy. He just likes railroad diner food and baseball in The Bronx! I see that they have already extended the netting in compliance with the new MLB regulation.

Hmmm.... could this be him stopping along the way after leaving the RR diner and before going to the games ?  ;-)

What an abundance of cute little people you have, Walt.

I'd like to populate my K-Line Fleet of Modernism passenger cars.  Which figures should I look for and where should I buy them ?

Good morning Dan. I am also interested in finding more interesting Little People for my layout.

In reply to your question, I Googled O Scale passengers sitting, and found 100 pieces on eBay for $8.99. I don’t know how good they are, but I would guess that at least 25, perhaps as much as 50 of them would work for you.

I suggest that on the Internet you research Arttista, Woodland Scenics, Bachman, and maybe Oakridge Hobbies and major O Gauge model train retailers like TrainZ to find quality O Scale sitting passengers. 

In the early to mid 1990, when I took my wife and young children to my only trip so far to York, we went to the Choo Choo Barn. It was a highlight of our trip for the whole family to go there. Marvelous layout there. During our visit there, I saw beautiful metal baseball figures in a pretty package with a red ribbon on it for $150, which I think wee made by Kramer Products. The reason I am not 100% sure is that long ago I threw out the box and red ribbon (big mistake).

I have the heart of an operator, not a wise investment minded collector.

Here are my beloved metal baseball figures playing baseball:

FFAF602C-8AD6-4954-9D5F-7EF1F009C177

I also have 3 outfielders.

I recently went to a train show and one vendor had beautiful, interesting figures, but they were very expensive so I did not buy any. As an example, he had a nice Dinky metal fork lift, which I already have on my layout, and he wanted $40 for it.

Don’t get me wrong. I will gladly pay a lot for something I love, like buying the $150 baseball figures. But I have to first fall in love with it to pay that much for something like that.

I would consider buying another quality baseball team, especially from Kramer Products, but I could not access their web site and suspect they are out of business. A couple of my figures have broken limbs. LOL.

Good luck hunting for the sitting passengers you are looking for. 

A possible good place to find what you are looking for is at the York train show, but you may find out that the good quality figures are expensive.

I LOVE that Good Humor truck! What was your source? Great looking scenes!

I'm sorry but I don't know - everything is put away and not easily retrieved, else I would dig it out to find out.  Every vehicle that came in a "box" or any sort is still stored in that "box" so it would be easy to tell.  Some came loose though from train shows.

Sorry I couldn't help.

Arnold, I feel your pain.  In the'80s, when I was into "O" gauge the first time, I bought what I liked.  Other's I knew would only buy collectible trains.  While I may not have realized a profit from my trains, I don't think the other guys did either.  

We have a saying on G Scale Central, "It's my railway and I will run what I like".

Here are some images of the photos that I took of it when I bought it in 1999 or 2000.  "Die Cast", as shown on the back of the photo, must mean "DieCast Direct" I'm guessing.  Good luck, hope you find one.
